President Joe Biden spoke in Carlsbad, California two days ago where he celebrated the fact that hard-working Americans employed at coal plants are losing their jobs – admitting he’s just getting started with his all-out assault on the country’s energy industry.
Since taking office, Biden has been on the offensive against the nation’s oil and gas industry, promising to usher in a transition over to so-called “green” energy sources like wind and solar.
As a result of Biden’s hostility towards the industry, companies have been extremely hesitant when it comes to investing large sums of money in building traditional energy production facilities like coal plants, which seems to be exactly what Biden wanted
“No one is building new coal plants because they can’t rely on it,” Biden said. “Even if they have all the coal guaranteed for the rest of the existence of the plant.”
“So it’s going to become a wind generation,” Biden added. “And all they’re doing is, it’s going to save them a hell of a lot of money and using the same transmission line that they transmitted the coal-fired electric on.”
Biden then revealed his ultimate plan for America’s energy future: “We’re going to be shutting these plants down all across America and having wind and solar power.”
Completely shutting down coal plants will impact have a devastating impact on states like Pennsylvania, North Carolina, West Virginia, Ohio, Michigan, Wisconsin, Colorado and others, whose economies rely heavily on the industry.
After Joe Bide revealed his and the Democrat Party’s plan to further cripple America’s energy industry, the president faced immense backlash and the White House was forced to step in and clean up his mess.
White House Press Secretary Karine Jean-Pierre walked back Biden’s admission with this statement: “The President’s remarks yesterday have been twisted to suggest a meaning that was not intended; he regrets it if anyone hearing these remarks took offense. The President was commenting on a fact of economics and technology: as it has been from its earliest days as an energy superpower, America is once again in the midst of an energy transition.”
Even some Democrats took issue with Biden’s apparent plan to eliminate America’s coal plants.
Democrat West Virginia Senator Joe Manchin blasted the president calling his comments “outrageous and divorced from reality.”
Others, meanwhile, proved that Biden’s admission was more than just the “misunderstanding” that the White House tried to write it off as.
Michigan Gov. Gretchen Whitmer’s running mate and lieutenant governor, Garlin Gilchrist, confirmed that Democrats want to “strengthen” their “response to the climate crisis” and “close more coal plants.”
Showing just how delusional these Democrats really are, in 2021 coal plants accounted for the largest share of electricity generated in the state of Michigan at 32% – such a move by Democrats would send prices soaring.
